Campus Research Foci
The three Central Hessian universities have many areas of intersection in their subjects and, at the same time, owing to the difference in scientific profiles and to the strategy of creating professorships to be distinct but to intermesh with each other at the three institutions, their specialities are complementary, lending themselves to collaboration. In many fields, joint research activities have therefore been an established practice for many years. Cross-university cooperation is now funnelling into the Campus Research Foci. These contain thematically focused joint research clusters which pursue common scientific goals, are developing strategically and are successful in scientific competition.
